English has become an important language, many children have begun to learn English, so what are the mistakes of children's English learning? What are the mistakes of children's English learning? Let's share with you the following English foreign teachers recruitment network?
1. Replace language teaching with word teaching
There is a common view among parents and teachers of children: the main task of children's English is to teach children to recognize letters, memorize English words and speak some daily expressions. In teaching, we should follow the procedure from letter to word, generally starting from letter, learning words by letter, and teaching words as the main way; the so-called teaching materials are also books such as reading pictures and literacy. This way follows the traditional habit of children's cognition of Chinese characters, that is to help children to remember images with the aid of teaching aids such as physical pictures. This is a good way for Chinese character recognition, because many Chinese characters still have pictographic characteristics. But the English alphabet itself is abstract and meaningless. It is difficult to ensure that children can acquire enough real and cordial perceptual knowledge of English by teaching them letters or words.
As a language, English is a complete unity of all components. Learning English means learning, mastering and using all components as a whole. However, the practice of teaching children to memorize English letters and words in isolation can not cultivate their interest in learning English, but may kill this interest and lay a curse for future learning. For example, when teaching words, some teachers will adopt the so-called "series teaching" strategy to classify the words so as to help children form close association or contrastive Association, thus establishing an English concept system. What's more, without considering children's receptive ability, we can expand the teaching content without restrictions, and put some words with similar pronunciation that are still difficult for adults into one teaching, such as fox and box, fish and face, pear and bear, which will only increase children's memory burden and cause confusion in use.
2. Replace games with teaching
For preschool children, play and play are important ways to accumulate knowledge and develop ability. Happy growth in play, knowledge and ability in play. However, due to the limitation of teachers' level, some children's English interest classes present the characteristics of primary school: teachers lead students to read letters, read words, recite sentences, lack of innovation in form and content, no activities, no games, difficult to attract children's attention, unable to let them participate, experience English with their bodies and various sensory organs Feel and use English. As far as children are concerned, without interest, there is no learning; such teaching is equal to not teaching.
3. Replace tolerance with exactitude
Like adults, any child has self-esteem. In the process of growing up, children want more praise and encouragement from parents and teachers. However, some teachers can't tolerate students' mistakes and are eager to ask children to master what they have taught in class quickly, and ask them to remember and speak well, so that they can pronounce accurately from the beginning. This kind of teaching attitude is serious, but it is no different from "encouraging the young". Children often feel depressed because they are often corrected, and eventually they get bored and lose confidence in learning English.
In fact, even if children learn their mother tongue, who can't often make mistakes? Who can often pay special attention to these children's language form mistakes? Learning their mother tongue is still like this, foreign language learning is even more like this. If you don't study, there will be no mistakes. Therefore, no matter teachers or parents, the first principle to remember is probably "don't criticize children". Children are good imitators. Teachers and parents should use correct words to influence them, create a large number of rich and interesting activities and environments for them to listen and speak English, and promote their active learning and communication.
